I am a senior in high school in the US currently looking for the right college(s) to apply to. I am looking to major in physics and I am currently thinking about going to graduate school afterwards to get a PhD in physics, although this may change. I am looking for a school that will be prestigious enough for me to get into a good graduate school, but not one that will leave me with no free time. A list of traits that I would like it to have (although I know it probably won't have all of them) would be: small to medium size, at least moderately prestigious, close to or in the South-East US, allows for a healthy social life, and allows for regular contact with professors. Any and all recommendations, suggestions, and comments are welcome. If it helps at all, the related courses I am currently taking are AP Calculus AB, AP Physics C (Mechanics), and AP Chemistry.
